Abstract: Provides overview of structure, functioning and interactions of marine and terrestrial systems at sub-Antarctic Prince Edward Islands. Includes sections on inter-relationship of marine and terrestrial systems; effects of climate change, biological invasions and over-exploitation of marine resources; and history of human presence with particular reference to ways in which South Africa's socio-political history has influenced practices at research station on islands since annexation in 1947-48. Extensive appendices list species of plants, invertebrates and mammals found on islands.
